IPL 2020 Schedule: Mumbai Indians-Chennai Super Kings opener in doubt

BCCI’s worst nightmare seems to have come true with the Coronavirus making its entry into the Chennai Super Kings camp in the UAE.

Around 13 CSK members including two cricketers are reported to have been tested positive for the deadly virus putting a big question mark over upcoming IPL season scheduled to start from September 19.

While the IPL authorities have their hands full dealing with the Covid-19 mess that erupted in the Chennai Super Kings camp- a development that was certainly considered possible, given the menace of the virus- the remaining franchises say, we have not heard anything from the BCCI-IPL ever since we flew in here.

The COVID-19 positive tests mean CSK will have to undergo a 14-day quarantine period instead of six days which will greatly affect their preparations.

According to a report in The Times of India, to ensure enough star power on the field, Rohit Sharma-led defending champions Mumbai Indians could open the season against Royal Challengers Bangalore of Virat Kohli.

“It could possibly be Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) because in the first match, you’ll need star players on the field. If MS Dhoni is missing, then it has to be Virat Kohli,” TOI quoted unnamed sources as saying.

The English daily has also reported that the franchises are unhappy with the way BCCI has been dealing with the situation with ‘no communication’ from the Indian cricket board.
